Melding traditional Chinese cuisine with a hip and contemporary venue, RED EGG caters to those looking for excellence in their cuisine as well as in the ambiance they want to enjoy it in. In addition to the Cantonese and Szechuan specialties menu, RED EGG features classic Cantonese dim sum throughout the day. Recently awarded the Bib Gourmand rating in the MICHELIN Guide New York City 2011. Don't forget to try the Peking Duck Sliders, Pan Fried Dumplings and Red Egg Filet Mignon to name a few.

I am pretty fussy about my " Chinese Cuisine" having travelled extensively in Asia. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the ingredients and preparation of our meal. More than adequate portion sizes were well presented with style. The staff were attentive and prompt. I would recommend this location to anyone wishing a great evening of good food.

Steamed Dumplings are delicious. The place looked like they thought the future would look like in the seventies.

We visited Red Egg on Christmas Day 2009. We looked for some time to find a reasonable place, it wasn't the easiest as many places were either closed or had special priced expensive menus. Red egg seemed a sensible choice as it was business as usual in terms of the menu. The menus are quite extensive. We ordered some Dim... More

We were looking for a casual, authentic restaurant in Chinatown, and were recommended to Red Egg. We had a great experience! Very authentic (lots of locals and Asians), and excellent food! the menu was in English and Chinese, which made it very easy for us. We ended up telling the server we'd have what the table next to us was... More

We wanted dim sum for a late lunch and found some unusual ones we hadn't had elsewhere-- Durian (a fruit) in a puff, puff-filled duck, seafood siu mai (mostly shrimp) and a shrimp patty sated our appetites. No carts on a weekday afternoon but a wide variety of dim sum were available off the menu. Across the street from the... More

Keeping track of dim sum dishes for 16 people can be confusing, but the staff at Red Egg were extremely accommodating about it. We had tons of dishes and all of them were excellent. Since they don't have a liquor license yet, you can BYOB and they'll serve it and keep it on ice, etc. Great for groups so you... More
